Osborne's new solution to the housing bubble.

In twenty years’ time, when Britain is transformed into a green and pleasant Texas with oil and gas fracking wells on every corner, you may find yourself asking ‘when exactly did we agree to let this happen?’ Well, the answer is today. The 28th of July, 2014 saw our government announce the fourteenth licensing round and put Britain up for shale. Is this something you need to worry about? We think so.

Have you declared your home Not For Shale?

Since last week, nearly 17,000 of us have come together to throw a major spanner in the works of those who want to see Britain fracked. Together, thousands of us living in areas earmarked for potential shale gas extraction have launched a serious legal challenge against underhouse fracking. Now meet a few of the people who have joined the Not For Shale legal block.

I think we hit a nerve with this one...

We've been collating defensive responses from government and industry since about midday, and felt we should send a volley back to those who've been shaken into such uncharacteristically immediate replies.
